Patriots player on Jared Goff: 'We believe he'll bleep his pants'

ATLANTA -- The Patriots defense appears to be pretty confident when it comes to stopping Rams quarterback Jared Goff.

One anoymous player indicated to NFL Media's Mike Giardi they want the ball in his hands.

"Publicly, Patriots players rave about (Goff), say he can make all the throws," Giardi said Sunday morning. "Privately, however, they want to put this game on Goff. One player telling me, 'If we show them some of the looks we've seen so far to some of these other quarterbacks, something (Goff) hasn't seen before, we believe he'll bleep his pants.' And all it takes is one or two of those moments according to this player."

The Patriots were able to frustrate Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes, especially early in the AFC title game with some different looks, and could do the same Sunday.

Goff has struggled in recent weeks, as he hasn't had a 300-yard passing game since Week 15.
